Guys and gals, I’m looking for some input into a problem I’ve been having with my left elbow. I recently posted something about my left shoulder which has been giving me issues but failed to mention the elbow, which happened earlier and very well may have led to the shoulder injury.
So visualize this: when my elbow is bent, with my upper arm resting against my side and my forearm laying perpendicular to my body (across my stomach), there is a small bump just below the tricep (a little above my elbow). Its clearly visable, and I can feel it, especially when flexing the muscles of my upper arm; I don’t even like to think about it or type it, but I’m worried it’s a tendon problem.
Now, to anyone with a medical background (or who might have suffered a similar injury): any idea what this is? I’m going to a doctor in a week to discuss my various ailments (between my knees, my shoulder and this elbow issue I feel like a physical wreck) but was wondering if someone might be able to shed some light on this before my visit.
It’s really worrying me, the last thing I want is any kind of surgery but at the same time I haven’t felt 100% in quite some time; BP and overhead numbers have been going down and I’ve actually stopped doing overhead movements in an effort to let my body recover on its own. The more I think about it, though, the more it seems I might need some medical attention to get this taken care of.
Thanks for the help everyone!
